Wild Wilderness Under the I-705

Tacoma has a temporary art exhibit called the Temporal Terminus: Marking the Line Project. There are several sites that are part of this instillation. and today I stopped at the Wild Wilderness. It’s located next to the entrance to the Tacoma Art Museum’s parking lot and under the I-705 Overpass in an area of vegetation.  There were several animal cutouts including a sloth, a squirrel and a fox. There was one near the concrete support piece, but my husband suggested that I let the man in the sleeping bag alone.

The website for the project provides the following information:


SITE 3: Under I-705
Title: Wild Wilderness
Artists:  Jennifer Adams, Kristin Giordano, Kenji Stoll

This work comments on the diminishing open spaces in our world and the impact on animal habitat.  In addition, it calls attention to the wild spaces that exist within our urban midst. A variety of animals that would be hard pressed to co-exist inhabit this newly created environment.”
